Reviews and Assessments

How do you ensure you’re setup for success?

Product management is under increasing pressure. More products are launched while markets evolve and organisations change. There is more to do and less time for thinking and strategic planning. It’s unsurprising that few find the time to do a thorough review of their product management function and come up with practical ideas for improvement.

We can help – with a quick review of product management at your company or a full and comprehensive assessment of the whole function.

Product management review

As the person that heads up product management, a review gives you fire-fighting_emaila quick and sharp analysis of the product management at your company. It typically takes place in advance of on-site training for the whole team.

This is your opportunity to discuss product management and product marketing in your business with an independent and impartial functional expert.

A Product Focus Director will meet with you at your office. They will run a structured session to discuss and advise on your main product management challenges, uncover other potential issues and agree key areas of focus in the training. A typical review takes 6 hours. After the session they will produce a short report you can use to prioritise future improvements.

Various tools are used including our Product Management Framework© which examines the complete product life cycle and 5 product function enablers.


Product management assessment

Board_reportingA Product Management Assessment is a more comprehensive audit of the product function in a business. It involves a series of meetings with key stakeholders and product managers to uncover, validate and explore issues.

The output is a report and set of pragmatic recommendations to answer questions such as:

  • What’s the role of product management in our company?
  • Are we set up right and what processes should we have?
  • Have we got the right people?
  • What performance indicators should we use?
  • Are we using best practice?

We’d love to talk to you.

A great course delivered by a dynamic and knowledgeable expert with real world industry experience. I believe regardless of their experience level anyone would learn something new. Best investment I have made for my team and business this year.
Phil Hornby - Head of Product Management Platforms, Diagnostics and Services, Continental
Please do everything you can to leave your day jobs at the door and fully engage in this course. I did it in September and can honestly say it is the most useful training I’ve done in my career.
Will North - Product Management Director, Callcredit (Will attended a Public Course then arranged Private Training for his team)
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learned so much more than I expected! I've recommended you to a number of colleagues. The templates on the USB stick are proving extremely useful.
Andrew Sayle - Product Focus Certified Product Manager, Zen Internet
The course was superb and we’ve had excellent feedback from the team. Everyone learned – regardless of their history, experience or accountability level in the team.
Paresh Patel - Head of Product Management for Managed Mobility and Security, Vodafone Global Enterprise
Product Focus has delivered everything we were looking for from a partner and I am really pleased with the training feedback. We have valued enormously their advice, flexibility and professionalism.
Jennie Brown - International Learning & Development Director, CDK Global
6 months on - I think your product management course must have been the most valuable course of my career so far. I have used much of the material on the USB key and your analogy of being the CEO of the product really helps.
Ellie Ryan - Product Manager, Thomson Reuters
Overall very good and very useful. It helped me with the foundations, core and structure of my role and I look forward to getting back into the office to use my new skills.
Gavin Murphy - Product Manager, KCOM
I’ve used other companies for product management training in the past but this was the best I’ve seen - I and everyone in my team rated the course as ‘excellent’.
Simon Witkiss - Product Director, IRIS Software Group
Many thanks again for an excellent, informative and interesting course. As I mentioned on Friday I will certainly be sending any new product managers to you as and when they come on board!
Paul Prior - Sysnet Global Solutions
